The Chrysler Corporation goes back to 1925 when Waller Chrysler opened shop. It didn’t take long for Chrysler to build strong brand recognition that went on to be one of the Big Three U.S. automakers (GM, Ford, and Chrysler). In modern times, Chrysler is part of the Fiat brand, and both fall under the Stellantis North America umbrella. This over-arching brand sells vehicles by Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Chrysler, which explains why every Chrysler dealer typically has these other brands on site.
Just because SUVs seem to have taken over the auto industry doesn’t mean there isn’t room for minivans on the road. The reality is that minivans offer features and perks that you can find in any other vehicle. For example, getting kids in and out of an automobile is easier than ever with sliding side doors.

Recent announcements were made that Google was putting its vehicular self-driving technology research and development under a new company name and moving it to the Alphabet holding company. This new company is called Waymo and one of the first questions to come out of this transition was whether or not Waymo would continue with the partnership that had been created with FCA to create self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans for the future. The answer is in and it’s a positive one with Waymo creating the minivans that will drive themselves and will be put on the roads by the end of 2017.
The new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has been revealed and is in its first stage of production. This will be the new minivan from Chrysler that takes the place of the outgoing Town & Country to be a minivan we can all admire and enjoy. This is a vehicle that has been shown to have the most technological advancements of any minivan and shows us what an updated and modern look should be.
